Hank grew up in the Philadelphia area riding horses and working on farms. He was an accomplished equestrian and enjoyed the hunts and sleigh rides. He joined the US Marine Corps in 1950 and served for 23 years, including tours in the Korean War and Viet Nam. Originally from Philadelphia, he lived more than half of his life in Prince William County. After retiring in 1973, he went into business, created 2 successful companies, then sold them to fully retire. He cleared land and built a home for his family and a gathering place for friends. He spent his retirement time gardening, cooking, biking, swimming, delighting in the outdoors, and volunteering in the community.

He was blessed by his church family at Immanuel Anglican Church, along with so many friends in the Prince William community. His strength, courage, integrity and, especially, his kind love will always be remembered.
